After a successful run last year, XTERRA is returning to Jamestown — but there’s a little more to offer this time around.
The extreme style of racing, which is a combination of mountain biking and a traditional triathlon, attracted people from eight states and Canada to participate in the first-ever sanctioned XTERRA event to be held in North Dakota.
Steve Aesoph of Jamestown finished second overall in the 10K run at the Subway Off-Road Festival in Aberdeen, S.D., on Saturday.
Aesoph finished in 38:56. He also finished fourth in his age group in the mountain bike expert class.
Steven Aesoph of Jamestown won the Pipestem Off-Road Triathlon held on Saturday.
He finished the event, which consisted of a 1,000-meter swim, an eight-mile mountain bike ride and a five-mile trail run, in 1:45:58.
For those interested in putting their bodies to the test, the Pipestem Off-Road Triathlon will be held here on Saturday, July 25.
The grueling, three-stage event is the only one of its kind scheduled in the three-state area of North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota this year. Spearfish, S.D., typically hosts a triathlon, but this year’s event was cancelled.
